What if there really are mistakes in the King James Bible?
QUESTION: What if there really ARE mistakes in the King James Bible?

ANSWER: Then it's up to YOU to find the Book that God was talking about in Psalm 12:6,7 and Jesus was talking about in Matthew 24:35.




I learned a great lesson in the late 1960's. I watched on television as riotous hippies burned down the Bank of America offices. Other rioters razed entire neighborhoods to the chant of "Burn, Baby, Burn." The hippies' claim was that they had to burn this country to the ground in order to build a new one. And THAT is what I learned: ANY hippie can burn down a building, but I've NEVER seen even one building that a hippie built.


The cruel truth is that when you become a rebel against authority, such as the hippies were, you become an EXPERT in the art of destruction (II Peter 2:9-15). A life committed to destroying is difficult to reverse. Thus, hippies know how to destroy buildings which were built by others. But they cannot build anything in a productive manner that improves on what they destroyed.

This rebellious hatred for AUTHORITY is also manifested in the rabid attacks on the Holy Bible by self-proclaimed scholars. They can wax eloquent in their destructive criticism of God's perfect Book. Then after reducing it to ashes in the hearts and minds of students and church members, are unable to replace it with anything that even compares with the divine writings they have so viciously attacked.

If you have been convinced by some spiritual hippie that the King James Bible has mistakes in it, then I suggest you ask them to REPLACE it with a Bible that is perfect.

They may point to the New International Version, or New American Standard Version, or New King James Version as a "better translation." But no one will DARE to claim that any of these are the Bible referred to in Psalm 12:6,7 or Matthew 24:35.

If you press the issue they will most likely run you through the brambles and briers of the claim that God's Word is found only in "the Greek." But the fact is that their very limited knowledge of the original languages leaves them unable to read, study or preach from either Hebrew or Greek. Even if they COULD translate either the Textus Receptus or the local Egyptian text of Alexandria literally, they would be forced to admit that there are readings in both that they cannot accept as infallible.

The FACT is, that, like their hippie counterparts of the late 1960's they find themselves standing on a pile of smoldering ruins, without any ability whatsoever to rebuild even an outhouse, let alone render a perfect Bible.

No, if you have been convinced by someone that the King James Bible has errors IN SPITE of the facts, then you have accepted that thesis for only one reason; your love for and loyalty to the Bible's antagonist. The critic is your father, brother, pastor, youth director, college professor, or just someone you love too much to confront or withstand on the Bible issue.

So, if you have been convinced by someone that the Authorized Version has mistakes in it, you should toss your King James Bible into the wastebasket on top of your NIV, NASV, NKJV and both of the Greek texts. Then go to that person, fall on your knees, kiss their ring and say, "Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?"

But remember one thing: Your God is a REBELLIOUS HIPPIE!

Why There is No King James Bible 'Controversy'

The Truth About The King James Only Question

written by Dr. Sam Gipp

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. " Galatians 1:8




For forty years I have been preaching and actively defending God's perfect Bible, the King James Bible. There have been many books written both denigrating and defending this noble book. Preachers have parted company over it. King James advocates have called its critics, "apostates," "Bible-correctors" and other names. Opponents of the King James Bible have called Bible believers, "cultists," "Ruckmanites" and a few other choice names. It sure sounds like a controversy, doesn't it? But I am here to tell you that there is no "King James Bible Controversy." What we are actually witnessing is the "No Perfect Bible Controversy." Why do I say this?


The King James Bible is the only bible translated under the direct commission and authority of a king.

If tomorrow all of the King James Bible advocates stood up and said, "We are changing our ways. We no longer believe the King James Bible is perfect. In fact, we agree 100% with our former opponents that the King James Bible is riddled with errors." there would be a massive "Amen!" from all those who oppose us today. They would say things like, "It's about time you came to your senses," or "It's good to see you've left the Ruckman cult," or other "encouraging" words. But! If, right after we made that statement we said, "The reason we no longer believe the King James Bible is the perfect word of God is because we now believe the New International Version is the perfect word of God." As soon as our anti-King James opponents heard that, they would rend their cloths, cast dust in the air and cry, "They're still crazy!"


Why would this happen? Because their opposition isn't to the concept that the King James Bible is the perfect word of God. Their opposition is actually to the concept that there is a perfect Bible anywhere on earth! They don't just hate the King James Bible but they hate the thought that there is a perfect Bible anywhere, no matter which version it might be. Why is this? Because they cannot humble themselves enough to be in subjection to any book, even the Bible. Any "bible!" They have a spirit that is very similar to that of evolutionists. There are two kinds of evolutionists. There is the air-headed high school graduate who believes in evolution because he trusted his science teacher and his science teacher took advantage of that trust and sold him on evolution regardless of the fact that it is still an unproven theory. Show this kid the lack of evidence for evolution and he can be corrected.


Do YOU have a perfect bible? We do!

The second group of evolutionists are the "Mover & Shakers" of evolutionary teaching. They have seen the fossils and they know there is no way to prove this theory. They believe it for a completely different reason. Somewhere along the line they figured, "Well, of course evolution is true. Because if evolution isn't true then the Bible is. If the Bible is true then; I'm a wicked sinner, I'm going to answer to God for my actions and I'm going to die and go to H...ah...I BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION!" Just as there are two kinds of evolutionists there are also two kinds of "Bible Correctors." There are the Bible college graduates who trusted their professors and had their professors take advantage of that trust and convinced them that there was no perfect Bible on earth. Show this sincere, but deceived, young man the facts and he can be corrected.

The second group of "Bible Correctors" are the "Mover & Shakers" of modern Christianity. They have seen the manuscript evidence and they know there is no way to prove their false teaching. They reject the King James Bible for a completely different reason. Somewhere along the line they figured, "Well, of course there's no perfect Bible on earth. Because if there was then; I'm going to answer for not reading it, for violating it, for pretending I didn't know there was an absolute authority. I'm going to answer to God for my actions and ...ah... THERE IS NO PERFECT BIBLE!" Therefore, although all the artillery has been aimed at the King James Bible and its proponents, neither it nor they are the problem. The problem is that most of the "Mover & Shakers" of modern Christianity are agnostics at heart and reject the concept that there is a perfect Bible anywhere on earth.

But, don't believe me! Go ask one. Say to an opponent of the King James Bible, "If tomorrow all the King James Bible believers recanted their belief and said it wasn't perfect, would that be good?" See what they say. Then add, "They all said they threw out their King James Bibles because they had come to realize that it's actually the New International Version that is the perfect Word of God without error. What do you think of that?" See what they say!

Their hatred isn't for us. It's for the One who put a perfect Bible on this earth and forced them into such a tight spot!
